Video: Learn to Marble Paper using the Suminagashi Technique

This is an activity for people of all ages – if working with small children, use disposable cake tins for a vat and pieces of yarn instead of paintbrushes.

Basic Steps:

Simply pour water into a tray and gently touch your inked paintbrush to the surface of the water to draw the ink out. Once you’re satisfied with your design, lay a sheet of paper atop it and peel it away.

For ‘clear’ ink, use a mixture of a drop of dish soap to a cup of water.
